If your hands bled when you washed them, you would be worried. Why is it any different with your gums? These situations call for the aid of Periodontics Treatment. Ohio dentist Dr. Schindler is well experienced in the area of periodontal disease.
Swollen and bleeding gums are an early sign that your gums are infected with bacteria. If the infection spreads, it can destroy the structures that support your teeth in your jawbone. The result can be the removal of several teeth. The major cause of periodontal disease is plaque and bacteria. In recent years, gum disease has been linked to other health problems such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes and respiratory disease. Gum disease can increase the risk of these diseases or worsen already existing conditions.
You can prevent periodontal disease by practicing good oral hygiene. Daily brushing and flossing, when done correctly, can help remove most of the plaque from your teeth. Professional cleanings by your dentist or dental hygienist will keep plaque under control in places that are harder for a toothbrush or floss to reach.
The latest techniques in periodontal treatment are offered at Dr. Schindler Dentistry. Scaling and root planing in addition to the high tech Diode laser, used to eliminate unhealthy gum tissue painlessly, can effectively treat periodontal disease. Come and visit us at Schindler Dentistry in Ohio, and prevent periodontal disease from affecting your smile and your confidence!
